  1. some math behind Icy Treat Chest

    It's all luck boys and girls. Pray to RNGEsus, cross your fingers, and hope for the best. ... ... ... ... By the way, I got 3 costumes, 1 gem, and 10+ oils in 60 boxes.
  2. I went through 150, had to get the swimsuit with dust. Then 30-40, then 10. RNGesus is among us.
  3. Tidal Treasures [Your Feedback]

    Your point is based solely on the fact that you got REALLY lucky. I'd be happy as all *cricket* too if I were you but I burned 150 corals and bought my swimsuit with the dust and OMFG do I want one for my Yun, and Gon as well. Again, it's too costly for my casual ass self and it'll just stall my upgrading gear on my main since that's a *cricket*ing chore in itself as it is. Needless to say, I wasn't/am not very happy. Grats to you though. I hate you. <3
  4. Tidal Treasures [Your Feedback]

    This event can suck it. It's too costly, only available to Lv50s, and the RNG element just kills your soul slowly.
  5. How can they even call this sh*t an event? It's an RNG based GOLD SINK. Not only that, you need Black Rose Feathers for all the good stuff which is only attainable at Lv50 assuming you can get a group if you're under 500 AP. I'm only interested in the swimsuits and even after 150 tries I didn't get a single 6, I had to buy my one swimsuit with the Coral Dust and spent 60 gold (gold I was saving to upgrade my gear but a costume *cricket* is a costume *cricket* >.<) give or take trying to get it in first place. #Feelsbadman I'd keep trying to get some of these outfits for my alts but as I stated earlier, it's not looking good when they're all under Lv50 AND under 500 AP AND I don't want to mess with RNGesus anymore because the *cricket* only wants the meager amount of gold I have for these costumes anyway. It's a very poorly thought out event. RNG + Gold Sink is just asking for pissed off people. Especially the more casual players who don't have a lot of gold to be throwing around or time to be wasting trying to get the rewards. I'd like to offer NCSoft a middle finger as a thank you for their generosity, innovation, and overall my heartfelt frustration. That is all. :D
  6. Show off your characters!!

    Lots of good looking characters, some curious ones, some weird ones, and some downright wtfwhereyouthinking ones as well. Lol I'll put up some of mine as well. Sexyness incoming. My Warlock. Assassin Force Master Blade Master Kung-Fu Master
  7. NCSoft Incentive WTF?

    I like everyone else I was really looking forward to this game being released over here in the West. Needless to say, like a lot of you out there I'm somewhat disappointed in the outcome. I'm not going to list all the things that caused me to stop playing for about two months since there's plenty of threads out there about this already. Lol Anyway! Onto the point. A friend of mine who played this game with me decided to stop playing around the same time I did and today he tells me he got an email from NCSoft offering him an incentive to come back and play. This right here I will admit really got to me. Not hating on my friend either as he quit mainly due to hackers in arena, bots in arena, rng boxes and probably won't come back even with the bribe. NCSoft sen him an email offering 7 days of premium, a free 'weapon' upgrade (whatever the hell that is), exp soups, not ONE but TWO hongmoon hexagonal gems (35 AP Diamond and 3 AP 200 LD Amethyst) and some other random stuff. WTF? Seriously? I know the community is split between the whole P2W thing (which caused more than one person I know to leave this game) with the RNG boxes and how gems/mats came out of them but it comes at a price as we all know, cash $$$. Giving out free gems as an incentive to people who have left the game pisses me off in all honesty and it should feel like a slap across the face to all of those people who have stuck with, grinded, defended, and for lack of better words put up with how NCSoft is doing things. Given, I took a break and don't consider myself one of these players but the unfairness of it just doesn't sit right with me as they're giving away what others have worked really hard to get to those who decided this wasn't the game for them in hopes of bringing them back. Instead of rewarding their loyal player base with whatever, they're trying to temp the ones that left and again in my opinion are basically insulting the ones who've stuck with them so far. Forget the cries for solutions the current player base wants, let's get old players back and give them what our current players are striving to get. It's so stupid it's laughable. Great move NCSoft, your thought process leaves me stupefied yet again. P.S. I got a 7 day premium status (I already bought a year -.-) and Penguin Pet as a Thank You from them for being part of their community... Woohoo.... P.S.S We all know they just want a larger player base so more people fork over their hard earned money buying cash shop items. Lol
  8. Show off your characters!!

    I suppose I can show off mine every now and then. Behold and gaze in awe~ My Assassin, Saori. =3
  9. The Bikini Thread

    Gaze and be amazed.
  10. Cheaper fabrics for free players.

    This is a thing on other versions of the game (NOT NA/EU) but since gold sellers constantly farm the 'free' outfits for the fabrics you'd just be inviting them to litter the servers even more with their bots. I know how you feel, but this is probably never going to happen outside of salvaging cash shop costumes the way it is now.
  11. I like many other players purchased a Founders pack and I, being the impulse buyer I am decided to go with the Master Pack. However, as my 3 month Premium Membership is getting closer and closer to its end I've been trying to come to a conclusion to my question. Is Premium worth it? The benefits are OK for me at best. The only benefits I really like is the discounts on upgrading and of course the wardrobe, aside from that everything else I can easily do without. I.e. Increased exp/currency from monsters, the Windwalk animations, the extra slots for the market place, reduced cooldown on Windstride, etc. Is there something I'm missing that would make this worth an extra $15 a month? I say extra because I'm a costume hoar... What do you guys think? Is it worth it to you? Are you going to renew your subscription? If yes, what do you like about it? If no, what would you like to see or change? Discuss.
  12. Update Fail

    Do ctrl+alt+delete and make sure there isn't any other BnS program running. It happened to me too and I just ended the task and reopened the launcher. It worked.
  13. @Taywen If it helps that's really the only time thus far that the game will make you do that and you only need 30(?) Insignias I believe. With a group you can have it done in about 15-30 minutes assuming you don't get ganked by the opposing faction. If you're Cerulean it'll be easy, like cake easy. Aside from that when you get down to it the game is making you flag yes, but you're not forced to kill other players, just relevant mobs from the opposing faction.
  14. i have given up

    Don't feel bad. I swear to you RNGesus loves to play with us mortals. I ran Adder's Nest over 600 times (roughly 1-2 minutes per run) until I finally got the Bandit Queen outfit, 1 time for First Step, less than 10 for the Pirate Princess, 20+ for Dark sandstorm (still don't have it), and the numbers go up and down from there. I know there's horror stories out there for Infinite Challenge too as a friend of mine ran it 200+ times before he got it (I think he got it). Point is, RNGesus SUCKS, just run the thing a couple times a day and don't even think about it, you'll get it eventually.
  15. Animation cancelling... is dumb.

    Soooo... A good friend of mine is taking a break from this game thanks to this 'mechanic', and bots littering the arena. Can I call it that? Mechanic? Is that what it is? Whatever. Say what you will but I have to agree with his frustration over this. Being 100% to 0'ed when you've clearly had the upper hand all match is pretty damn annoying, discouraging, and out right rage inducing. Your tab escape is on CD? Great!~ Stun -> LMB/RMB x9001, Stun -> LMB/RMB x 9001, etc. etc. -> Win. Takes a whole lot of skill to pull this off for sure. I think someone called it rhythm... Takes a whole lot of rhythm to pull this off? LOL I can't even say that with a straight face.
